For almost three decades now, I have been privileged as a marriage and family therapist
to make a difference
in people's lives
to use all of my gifts
on behalf of others
for healing and wholeness
My background encompasses a number of different models and approaches. I am most known for being a Jungian-oriented therapist but also important to my professional identity has been
Formal training in pastoral counseling and spiritual direction
Long-term object-relations psychodynamic treatment
Cognitive-behavioral approaches to depression, health and sexuality concerns
Many years of being an "out" gay male therapist and activist in the Bay Area GLBT community.
Best-selling author, public speaker, teacher, supervisor and professional consultant
